    Siam Sky Train Station - Have U Seen This ?

    I hate this photo





    Forced to stare at it when waiting at the Siam Sky Train Station and sure some of you have also been forced to do so as well.

    It is a Marc Jacobs Advertising for I guess a handbag except the junkie model is holding it like it was a bag full of dogshit and her hat is something that only some ultra cool gay/lesbian/metro sexual stylist could have picked out.

    What message are the Marc Jacobs people trying to get across to the Thai population of Bangkok ?

    No idea who was forcing you to look at it, all I ever see at Siam station is a sea of girls in white shirts with buttons popping open.

    I've seen it too, massive horrible thing on the front of Paragon. It just goes to show how A: Stupid and ridiculous fashion is, I mean who actually dresses like these 'supermodels'??? ...and B: Advertise the fuck out of something, no matter how silly it is, give it some up-it's-own-arse minimalist name after some up-it's-own-arse limp wristed fashion designer who knows fuck all else about life - and you can make a fortune from fickle, easily lead wannabes and hi-so types with more money than sense that will pay whatever this Marc Jacobs twat wants.

    That's the way of the world folks, there's more stupid people than you can shake a stick at and plenty of companies out there happy to milk them.

    You are weak. You are NOT forced to STARE at it. There are plenty of other distractions on the Siam Conecting line.

    If you stare at it then you're easily subjected.

    The pic posted by the OP looks like a good one to throw back at the BangkokRecorder guys when they do another one of their "Pirates" photo albums...

    It says to me: Wanky, flaky, androgynous fashion-victim junkie c/w a stupid-looking fukcing bag that costs an equally stupid amount of money.
    I think the ad was tailored for the Bkk market..

    I get the skytrain every morning, and evening. I wear headphones, listen to music and admire the wonderful eye candy around me at the rush hours. I haven't once felt the desire to ogle and take it the advertising that bombards you around the area.

    You're weak if you take it in. 'Nuff said.

    It's not a case of that, don't twist the facts to support your argument.

    The vinyl poster has a bigger surface area than a tennis court, it's hard not to notice it with a critical eye regarding it's content. If I spot a good tits and arse it's soon forgotten about until somebody starts a thread on it and I agree with them that it's an eyesore.

    There are bigger and worse eyesores in Bangkok that annoy me more than this particular poster.

    Really?

    I haven't come across anything more annoying than Scampy yet.
